Hello, minecraft universe!
I'm going to get to the point here... My computer SUCKS!
The lag is so bad, it's amazing.
I can't afford a new computer right now, so does anyone have tips on how to work with a laggy computer? Like, strategies or something?
If you could give me some tips on how to work around the lag, or just learn how to play despite the lag, I would really appreciate it.
And don't say, "just deal with it", because I've already tried that. I've lost most of my points and been killed quickly most of the time since the lag started.
And don't tell me that it's my connection to the server, because my lag is just as bad when playing singleplayer.
Please help.
Thanks.

Well, I have a macbook (2008) and it is VERY laggy. I use optifine to reduce my lag. It does help a lot. and even on Tiny render you can still see very far. Optifine does not require modloader. Just search "Minecraft Optfine" in the google search (or whatever you use) and it should be very easy to install. Hope this helps!
